Three significant things to note for today / this past week:

1. This week is the 2 year anniversary for Stuff Steph Does. My how the time has flown.
2. Today is my birthday! however my birthday present came a few days early because of


Yup. That happened! B proposed this past weekend at our Design Week[s] Opening Party! I was completely surprised (so were the guys in the photo) because we had all been working so hard for the past few weeks planning this party and all of the upcoming events that I have no idea how he possibly had any time to do this, too!

After months of planning, our past week started out like this:

FOTOparty Before

And by Saturday Night we had the coolest warehouse party in Columbus!

FOTOparty after

An hour or so in to the party, we had opening remarks where there was a slideshow playing that was supposed to be charging the audience with questions about the city and how to improve the neglected spaces, but Brandon had his own agenda in the slides! You can see for yourself since he made sure to have some of his fellow conspirators catch it all on film:

So that was definitely the highlight of the night!


*Sigh* I snagged a good one I did.

    […] Because I’m such a sucker for alliteration, Wedding posts will be on Wednesdays. Wedding Wednesdays! It seems to make the most sense to go in chronological order of the whole process, so first up is engagement photos!
